Kelowna set to host 5th annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival next weekend

Elevation Outdoors is bringing 10 exciting films to Metro Hub in Kelowna’s cultural district.

They’ll be shown as part of the fifth annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival (WSFF), presented by Eising Construction Solutions.

It all goes down Friday, Jan. 26, with doors opening at 6 pm and the films starting at 7 pm.

Tickets are $35 if you want to attend, but there’s also an option to spend $20 to get access to all 10 films online to watch on your own time between Jan. 26-30.

This year’s WSFF is said to showcase 10 films that will leave guests inspired and ready to get outside.

They’ll highlight the importance of why everyone should have access to nature, which is the name of the game for Elevation Outdoors.

The charity creates scholarship opportunities for youth who face barriers in our community and have expanded their two most popular programs, for snowboarding and mountain biking, for 2024.

Mike Greer, executive director of Elevation Outdoors, says they’re excited to bring the WSFF back as it continues to grow year after year.

“This is a great event to get out, connect with others in the community and enjoy some films that will inspire you to get outside at a time when most of us can use an extra nudge,” he explained.

“The film festival is one of our largest fundraisers of the year and will help us continue to expand our programs so we can get more deserving young people outside and active each year!”

It won’t just be a screening on Jan. 26 either, as it’s touted as a lively event with beverages, popcorn and a silent auction.

Last year’s auction featured a summer pass to SilverStar and a two-night stay at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler.

Tickets for the festival, either in-person or online, and access to the silent auction online are available at this link.

If the event doesn’t sell out in advance, there will be tickets available at the door.
